About this Cook
I have 10 younger brothers and sisters and did most of the cooking since I was 13 years old. The first time I realized my cooking was appreciated was when my step mother asked me what I put in my spaghetti sauce because no one would eat hers. I didn't tell her. I now have my own little family of four children. Sometimes I will overhear one of my kids telling one of their friends I am the best cook in the world. It makes me happy to know I can put a smile on their face.

Mayan Hot Chocolate
Oh my! This is so good. Love the slight texture and feel of the hot chocolate and the flavor it to die for. I also tried this with ginger as suggested by another rater and yes, that is amazing too. Both ways is a winner to me!

Baked Oatmeal II
Someone said that this recipe is adaptable, and they are right. I suggest you make this as is the first time and then you can try different changes along the way. This morning I made this with a few changes that I thought I'd share. I did as some suggested and reduced the oil to 1/4 cup and used coconut oil instead of butter. I also substituted coconut milk for the milk. I also omitted the cinnamon and cranberries. I'm sure shredded coconut would have been great in this. Delicious! Thanks for sharing BLANCHL!

Banana Banana Bread
This recipe is VERY good. As other raters has suggested, if your bread ends up too dry, you are probably over mixing or overcooking. Also, a trick I learned from a cake decorating class: As you remove the bread from the pan, wrap bread in saran wrap, keeping all air out and allow to cool on rack. This keeps all moisture in and surprisingly is not soggy (although there will be if there were lots of air trapped in the wrap). Also, if you don't have enough banana, you could add apple sauce to the amount needed. For a twist, you could also add mini chocolate or cinnamon chips. Your favorite nut is also great in this recipe. I added coconut to my last batch and got lots of compliments. Thanks for sharing this recipe Shelley!
